Virginia Gold Cup This Saturday

May 2, 2012

The running of the world famous Virginia Gold Cup steeplechase race is this Saturday, May 5, 2012 at Great Meadow in The Plains, Virginia.

"This event has a wonderful 87-year history of connecting the entire region, bringing hunt country together with the city," said Marc Schappell, managing partner of Washington Fine Properties, one of Gold Cup's key sponsors.

The Virginia Gold Cup is a grand spring tradition as well as a fixture on the social calendar. Run in Fauquier County since 1922 and attended by over 50,000 spectators, this race is one of the largest and most popular sporting events in the greater Washington metropolitan area. Race day features six hurdle and timber horses races, Jack Russell Terrier races, tent, tailgate and hat contests, and vendor booths for shopping.

Ticket sales benefit the Great Meadow Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to the preservation of Great Meadow's open space for community access.
